Let’s face facts people.
You’re talking about putting together Adelaide.
Get a grip.
I’d go for greater Auckland myself. Super Auckland sounds like the kind of town that would rush to help other towns in distress.
maybe we can cover it with a giant cape. would beauty much of the upper north island.
Would beauty much of the upper north island? We in Wellington talk pretty some day.
(I wouldn’t bring it up but for the umpteenth annoying article in the DomPost yesterday about how Wellingtonians are more cultured than Aucklanders. It’s been proven by a survey!)
(At times like that I get the full brunt of the feeling that we live in a sad parochial shitty little town.)
ahem. i believe the correct term for wellington is “fishing village”.
But metropolitan Adelaide has 20 city councils. However, some issues are handled at state government level, rather than local government level. Transport is a state responsibility.
Don’t knock Adelaide too hard. They have pig statues in Rundle Mall, which is surely a badge of honour:
no no! i wasn’t knocking adelaide. just trying to provide a realistic comparison.
brisbane is another (though it’s marginally larger)
They have pig statues in Rundle Mall
And my daughters climb on them and slide down every time we go to Rundle Mall, as does every other child in Adelaide under the age of 10 or so. That’s what keeps the pigs so shiny.
